Fibre is the name of the game at a new festival taking place in St. Norbert.
The first annual Manitoba Fibre Festival is a unique opportunity for urban and rural Manitobans to come together in a creative atmosphere, to learn new skills, and to welcome the wool-wearing weather of autumn.
The festival is being held on Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the St. Norbert Community Centre at 3450 Pembina Hwy.
The Fibre Festival is a Culture Days event. Visitors will see demonstrations of many crafts from ancient spinning techniques to modern needle felting. There will be opportunities for hands-on participation, too. The festival organizers invite everyone to bring their own projects and join in the spinning and knitting circles.
